The Little Book of Hygge, by Meik Wiking
Denmark is the happiest place in the world, according to the United Nations, so why not take a little inspiration from the Danish way of life and invite hygge into you life this year? This Danish word for ‘well being’ was shortlisted by Oxford Dictionaries as the word of the year in 2016. So what is hygge? It’s basically anything that gives you a feeling of cosiness and intimacy. Popular examples include ‘the warm glow of candlelight’, ‘cuddling up with a loved one on the sofa’, or ‘wrapping your hands around a steaming mug of hot chocolate’. It’s personal yet communal, and totally achievable. This book gives great tips and advice on how to invite hygge into your life, one cinnamon bun and candlelit bath at a time.
Perfect for… Surviving the dark winter months by taking pleasure in the presence of soothing things.
